Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
A selection of new acquisitions and existing works from the permanent collection. The display will tie in with Twixt Two Worlds and will focus on works that use film and photography in their depiction of sea and landscapes.
This display will include the first showing of our new acquisition by Swiss artist Uriel Orlow, his installation work The Short and the Long of It 2010. We will also be showing our newest acquisition of five works by British artist Matthew Miller and Eastbourne Pier 2011 by Simon Roberts.
Artist Uriel Orlow makes multi-media installations that explore blind spots of history and forms of haunting and bring different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence. His work has been exhibited widely.
British artist Matthew Miller 1961 – 2011 created sculpture and installations for galleries and public locations, combining ‘real world’ objects with model representations, describing a realm of shifting perceptions, ambiguous and fragile landscapes. Matthew was also one of the founding members and Co-Director of the artist-led gallery Fabrica in Brighton.
Brighton-based photographer Simon Roberts b.1974 has exhibited widely and has published three critically acclaimed monographs, Motherland Chris Boot, 2007, We English Chris Boot, 2009 and Pierdom Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2013.
